Post Issue that I thought I would talk about

I'm not sure where this message should be, but I just thought I would express how I'm feeling right now.
Have you ever noticed in the Introduction section that very kind members offer kind words and helpful adivce to new members? Well I've noticed that some are simply copying and pasting the same message in each introduction thread. Sometimes they forget completely about the actual questions that the person is asking because they just press paste and move on to the next one.

I usually write some kind words and if they ask a question I try my best to answer it.... but if you guys out there care about welcoming these new members so much, why can't you just take the time to type something out from the heart? In your message it says that you are happy that they are here and in the community, but you probably didn't even read their message.

Opinions?

Please note: This is just my opnion... I'm not singling out any members and that was not my intention!

I'm just looking through some posts from some members and all you see is that exact same message. I mean no, there might not be anything wrong with it but I think everyone should be welcomed. Not just welcomed with a copied message and forgotten.

It's wonderful that you customize your messages as much as possible.. I try that too!

Yes... it's so incredibly upsetting. I think there should be a rule that if you want to welcome someone, you need to type something out. Everyone thinks that these people are so kind and take so much time to offer their kind words to members... but this isn't really whats happening.

I think we should all resolve to be more active in the new members section to give people a new welcome... with so many active members its a shame to see new members with only 5 or 6 welcomes. We should be doing a better job

I think that we all should take 3 minutes of our day and try to welcome a new member. My goal is to welcome 4 new members today! Let's all try to help out!

Thanks for posting this! I've been helping new people here and there when I notice them asking questions, but haven't really been doing my part to welcome anyone. I'll try to remember to make time for that now.
